How to Get Around Belize
Once you get to Belize you will find it is fairly easy and inexpensive to get where ever you want to go. Belize City is full of taxis to get you around town. Sometimes they may try and overcharge so I always ask how much before I get in the taxi to make sure I am getting a fair price. You can take a bus anywhere on the mainland from the main bus terminal. It is really cheap, but you do get what you pay for. Expect overcrowded old school buses and interesting cultural experiences. You can also get to Caye Caulker or San Pedro, Ambergris Caye by water taxi. They run around $25US and take 70-90 minutes. Even though I like boats and old school buses, my favorite way to travel around the country is to hop on a Tropic Air island hopper.
The flight from the Belize International Airport to San Pedro takes about 20 minutes and is one of the most beautiful flights you will ever take. Because the plane does not go above 2500 feet, you get an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea and Barrier Reef.
Please note, the Government of Belize and the Belize Airport Authority are requiring all Belizean Airlines to collect a six-dollar rider fee on all ticket segments. The rider fee is charged to every ticket issued regardless of any discount.
Examples: One way flight BZE – SPR = Rider Fee $6.00, Return flight BZE – SPR – BZE = Rider Fee $12.00 and flying to 3 destinations BZE – SPR – TZA – PLJ = Rider Fee $18.00
